Aircraft Certification Legislation Advances in Congress

NATCA represents FAA employees who are involved in the certification of aircraft. Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are seeking changes to the safety culture at the FAA and the process that certifies aircraft following the Boeing 737 MAX accidents. As such, legislation has been introduced in both chambers relating to aircraft certification reform. The House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee passed a bipartisan bill (H.R. 8408) on Sept. 30, which NATCA supports. The Senate Commerce Committee has introduced its own version of certification reform legislation, S. 3969, which NATCA also supports. The committee has not yet advanced the legislation. NATCA will continue to provide feedback to lawmakers as they work to address the issues.
